    Unruly pig and owner kicked off flight at Bradley

    WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (AP) — This was a pig that truly could not fly.

    By Associated Press Published: November 28, 2014, 9:40 pm

    The pig was ordered off a U.S. Airways plane at Bradley International Airport in Connecticut on Wednesday after crew members determined the animal had become disruptive, said Laura Masvidal, a spokeswoman for U.S. Airways parent American Airlines on Friday.

    Yup. Folks snort at you and treat you like an animal. There is no more dignity. Only thing worse than being a pig is being a turkey at Thanksgiving. :)

    In this case it was a turkey with a pig.

    I think service animals are amazing. I think people who abuse the system and try to pass off poorly trained animals as service animals give those with a genuine need a bad name.
